This book reports on the best laid plans that paved the way to the Philippines’ dark history: the imposition of martial law in 1972 and the schemes that built and held its infrastructure. Drawing data from his work as Marcos’s media adviser before his defection in 1975, Primitivo Mijares exposes the massive corruption and military abuses under the regime, which has left the nation in ruins. Forty years after its first publication, the book, reminds Filipinos of their past that remains a present threat.

Response to a conspiracy
This is not a review but my golly does someone just posted a conspiracy theory in in the review section. This is a part of Philippine History, at least try to understand what perspectives are and please do not try to insinuate unproven claims in an unrelated place. Keep your conspiracies to yourselves, and those of us who are curious will try to learn from the historians.

An actual review of this book, unlike the other one filled with fake thoughts
It's a great book to carry around for warding out a lot of misinformation associated with this very dark era of the Philippines, sowed in its land by an evil being whose shadow looms over the country even as decades have passed, influencing those who are both informed and uninformed to make multiple choices that matters in the grand scheme of events for the future generations of Filipinos to come...
I recommend everyone to read this wonderful book to know the corruptions taking place on this majestically cursed nation of hard-working but misrepresented people, so they could change the minds of those who thinks dictators are for the better of oneself even if it's never usually good at all
If President Marcos did not declare Martial Law in 1972, all the golds that were hidden in Philippine Archipelago would have been stolen. How many metric tonnes were hidden is unbelievable. The treasures were brought here during the time of King Philip II aka King Luisong Tagean Tallano. It is called The Treasury of Saint Graal.
The story of hidden wealth is cloaked in secrecy because of the Bilateral Minesfield Breakthrough Successor Agreement signed in 1950 by World Leaders.
